How Family members can get SMS notifications

If a connected parent or family member wants to receive SMS notifications about updates in their child's journal, here's how to turn ON SMS notifications. 


  1. Sign in to your Seesaw parent account at
  2. Tap on your profile icon
  3. Tap 'Account Settings'
  4. In the Phone field, add your phone number (including area code!) without spaces. Ex: 1238675309. Note: Non-United States phone numbers will need to include +country code.
  5. Toggle SMS notifications to ON

** SMS messages are not connected to the Seesaw app, so families without smart phones will still be able to receive notifications about updates in their child's journal **

If you are still not receiving SMS after you've done this, please contact Seesaw Support and we will investigate your account.
